    I know...this is a computer help forum, but we're friendier.

    All day I've tried to log into MSN Messenger and it says error 80072efd and it won't log me in. I went to help and tested my connection and everything's fine.

    So I tried to check my e-mail the old fasioned way but it says on Netscape "Connection refused" when I try to log in, then I go on Explorer and it say unable to connect.

    Is this something with my computer or something with MSN.com?

    I don't think my account's deleted it won't let me even go to the page to make a new account without "connection refused" or even send a help email to Hotmail.

    Do you have a firewall and could you have accidently set it to refuse connection to MSN?
    What kind of modem do you use. I know it may not help but if it's a DSL or cable modem ou could try resetting or unplugging them for a couple of minutes.

    Yes have a DSL turned it off and on multiple times and restarted. I have Norton Anti-virus and firewall.

    This is really starting to bug me. Seeing that Messenger is basically my life-line to the outside world.
